Rating: 6/10 -- Mars Needs Moms isn't as bad as you've heard, nor is it as good as it could have been. Will it entertain your family? That depends on how much your kids like mo-cap technology, and how much attention they pay to the inner logic of a film. Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's brought vibrantly to life by some AVATAR-esque motion-capture magic.
I just love Simon Wells' sense of adventure and with Mars Needs Moms, he soars. Full Review
Behind The Lens
As with a good live-action movie, it all begins with the script, and this one is solid-well thought-out, briskly paced, funny and sweet. In the end, it's the finished film that matters, not the process...
Rating: 1.5/5 -- The credited director is Simon Wells (The Time Machine), but the grotesque characters and dark action bear the Zemeckis stamp. Full Review
The Age (Australia)
Rating: 4/5 -- What really sells this fabulous, kid-friendly 3D adventure to anybody over eight (no offense, kids) is its astonishing visuals, which uses motion-capture technology to a degree that surpasses what we saw in Avatar. Full Review
The Age (Australia)
3.5 stars out of 5 -- The perfect family film in every way, moms, dads, kids and even those Martians are gonna love this funny, warm and wonderful tale.
His mother (voice of Joan Cusack) abducted by Martians intent on harvesting her maternal instincts to nurture their young, nine-year-old Milo (voice of Seth Green) stows away in an alien spacecraft bound for Mars in a bid to bring her safely back to Earth. Later, on the Red Planet, Milo befriends a subterranean-dwelling earthling named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a spirited Martian lass named Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), who agree to help him locate his missing mother and confront the head alien in charge (voice of Mindy Sterling).
